How to check the Numpy version in linux, mac and windows

How to check the Numpy version on linux, mac and windows:

Numpy package is used for scientific computation in python. It is easy to install numpy and use. In this post, I will show you how to check the installed numpy version in linux, mac or windows.

Method 1: Using numpy.version :

numpy.version holds the version number of currently installed numpy. Create one .py file with the below code:

import numpy 


Executing it will print the numpy version.

numpy version check

Or, if you don’t want to create a new file just to check the version of a library, you can directly copy paste the below command on a terminal :

python -c "import numpy; print(numpy.__version__)"

It does the same thing.

Method 2: Using pip:

Using pip, we can get version list of all the packages installed in our system.

For python3, you can use pip3 or simply pip for python2.

pip3 list

It lists all package list with its version number.

Package     Version
----------- -------
autopep8    1.5.4
decorator   4.4.2
numpy       1.19.1
patool      1.12
Pillow      8.0.1
pip         20.1.1
pycodestyle 2.6.0
setuptools  49.2.0

Or, we can simply use:

pip3 show numpy

pip3 show numpy


pip3 freeze | grep numpy

It will give only the version number.
